Having studied in both contemporary and classical art schools, Edinburgh artist Rerun blends contemporary street graffiti and lettering with hyperreal painted features and portraits to create eye-popping works with a unique visual style.
The artist uses these contrasting styles to explore the difference in what we show to the world versus what we choose to hide, resulting in a subjective take on the unreality of modern life and how we choose to see it. I’m really interested in looking at our modern lives and how we’ve become who we are. What makes us and how is that different from everyone else?
I love contrasting eye-popping colours with drips, tags, and marks against serene, beautiful elements like faces and figures.
